Overview of Rickets in Children

Rickets is a childhood disease where your child’s bones are too soft, causing their bones to warp, bend and break more easily. It’s typically caused by a lack of vitamin D, but in rare cases, is caused by an underlying genetic disorder.Rickets is different from osteomalacia, which is a similar condition seen in adults. The difference between the two is that rickets happens only in children because their bones are still growing, which causes the classic symptom of bowed or bent bones. Adults’ bones have already finished growing and they don’t have this symptom (unless they had untreated rickets as a child).While rickets is a treatable and often curable disease, it’s important to treat it as soon as possible. When not treated, milder cases of rickets can result in long-term bone that can keep bones from growing properly. Severe cases that aren’t treated can lead to seizures, heart damage and death.
